A police officer in Sarasota, Florida, was placed on leave on Tuesday after video surfaced showing the officer kneeling on a man's back and neck during an arrest in May.

When asked about the letter during his press briefing on Thursday, de Blasio said: "We are dealing with a crisis right here and trying to balance all the factors ... we are going to see ourselves get to a better and more peaceful city".

The mayor called for an entire separate investigation into the NYPD ramming of protestors.

Protests were also held in other cities around the country, including Washington D.C., Oakland, Chicago, Miami, Tampa and Orlando.

"But it is to create a tool.so that the police have the ability to intercept them beforehand and prevent them from doing the sorts of activities that we obviously all are opposed to". "I don't have a lot to say because I can't get my words together right now, but I wanted everybody to know that this is what those officers took", Roxie, pointing at her daughter. "Gianna does not have a father". While bad troubles have actually spread out around the nation like wildfire, New York City has actually been struck specifically poor, with Monahan claiming that he's "never seen anything like this".
